Comment Software Engineering as unskilled labor (Score 0) 145

So basically people expect everyone to do their own code. Fantastic. It will be a hobby, instead of a career, then? What's the rationale? And why would people give a flying fuck about programming anyway? Half of the world functions mostly on feelings, not deep logical reasoning.

Pretty sure if you look at a map you will see that the vast majority of our discoveries were ON THE WAY to China, haha, or entirely in the opposite direction, across the Atlantic Ocean :)
Like, you know, the entirety of Africa, India, and Brazil? :)
We certainly didn't discover the Bering Strait or anything up north. Beyond China, we went to Japan and Indonesia and that's about it.
